What do Michelangelo & Alumni Marching Band Have in Common?

    Nothing really, we just enjoyed them both in the same week. Hee Hee!

 Michelangelo's Masterpiece

During our home school co-op, we learned about Michelangelo. The kids got the chance to paint the way he painted the Sistine Chapel.  It wasn't very long into the project when we started hearing: "my back hurts, my arm hurts, I just dropped paint on my face."  They got to experience first hand, just a small fraction of what Michelangelo had to endure for his Beautiful Masterpiece.

LHS Alumni Marching Band

 Tony is on center line.  This is the 2nd year that the alumni band joined forces to play for the game.  
They only practiced for 30 minutes before the game & sounded amazing.  They blew the LHS Band away. 
What? You can't tell which trumpet player is my hubby?  
I'm hurt. :)
Tony is the second trumpet from the right.
Sweet Claire is the beautiful clarinet player in front of all the trumpets.
I hope she still can hear after 2 1/2 hours of trumpets playing in her ear.

 We were sitting behind, 2 big boys, Tony & Jason during the game.  
Needless to say, we didn't see much of the game.

Thank you Mr. Steve for all the hard work you did
to reunite this crew for an awesome performance.

So I guess to answer the Title question: (What do Michelangelo & Alumni Marching Band Have in Common?)  Enjoyment, Beauty & Old.  Hee Hee!
